Part 1



Who is your favorite celebrity in China?



Well, my favorite celebrity in China is Jack Ma who is the founder and CEO of Alibaba Group. I like him not only because he and his team created the biggest shopping website for consumers, but also he dramatically changed the traditional way of payment with the invention of Alipay.


Do you want to be a celebrity in the future?



Well, to be honest, I don’t want to be a celebrity as it makes me feel rather uncomfortable when I become the focus of people’s attention. Plus, I would really hate it when my privacy gets violated.


In general, how do people become celebrities?



Well, in recent years, more and more people become celebrities by participating in some talent shows in which they show one or two special talents to the audience and judges, and then they soon get known by the public after they win the contest.


What kinds of people will become famous?



From my perspective, I think people with some special talents are more likely to become famous or someone whose remarks or behavior draw a lot of public attention. For instance, those who impress the audience and judges with their extraordinary talents in a talent show or those who leave weird comments on a controversial issue through social media.

Part 2题目


Describe a new development (such as a new building, new roads) in your city?

You should say:

what it is

what it is used for

what it looks like

And explain why you like or dislike it.



此话题属于物品类话题, 所要描述的是“你所在城市的一个新变化或者进展等”;,我们可能使用的主要时态是 ”Past Tense”“Present Tense” 以及 “Present Perfect Tense”等等;接着,我们预览一下前三个“basic information”,然后思考一下:在交代这些基础信息的时候,可否添加一些补充信息, 使我们的描述听上去更加生动可信?比如,在描述这个新变化的同时, 是否可以拓展提到这个变化的特色, 特点? 它给城市或者城市居民带来的好处, 坏处等等。


到最后的部分, 我们需要说明: 为什么你喜欢或者不喜欢这个变化; 这里得给出具体的细节支持, 比如可以利用个人经历,举例或者对比等方式进行详细解释说明。



Talking about a new development in my city, I think it is a brand-new shopping mall which was built at the end of last year. It is located in the south of my city, so it is very close to where I live, which makes it convenient for me to visit quite often. Similar to most other shopping malls, it is a complex which consists of a number of buildings, and each building was designed for merchants to sell certain types of products, which means customers can have easy access to different shops for one particular product they want by just walking around in one building only, and with quite a few buildings in this shopping mall, there is definitely a variety of products as well as services ranging from clothing, home appliances, movie theatres, to fitness centres, and you can even find a hair salon if you feel like a new hair style. In addition, there is also a food court on the top floor of one building where you can have some rest and feed yourself with some yummy food when you get hungry.


I love this shopping mall because of two major reasons. One is that it is so close to my home that it only takes me about 15 minutes to get there by bus. Therefore, I often go there whenever I feel bored on weekends, and sometimes I would also ask a few close friends of mine to watch a movie or have dinner together. And the other reason is that I especially favor one café in that shopping mall. It is not because of the coffee they provide, but because of the magazines they put on the shelf for customers to read. I really enjoy reading those magazines because I could often find some useful tips that can inspire me in cooking so that I can keep on making yummy food at home for my loved ones.



brand-new 形容词; 崭新的

EgHe proposed a brand-new suggestion in this meeting, but some people doubted it.


②complex: 名词; 综合设施  综合广场等

EgSome visitors might get rather confused when they walk into a complex with so many similar buildings.


③range from:  短语; …..…..

Eg: This boy is crazy about music ranging from country music, folk music, rock music to classic music.


inspire 动词;启发

EgThe professor meant to inspire his students with the story he told in his class.


Part 3题目


Are there any new changes that happened at your home recently?



Yes, there are. I visited my home last Spring Festival, and what I found was that parents actually had a redecoration for our home. They bought some new doors to replace the old ones, and they also got some new beds for each bedroom, and they even bought a bigger sofa in the living room.



redecoration 名词;重新装修

EgThe majority of students believe that the school library needs a redecoration.


② replace : 动词;替代 取代

Eg: One important performer cannot make it to the show tonight, and it will be hard to find a substitute to replace him.  


Do you wish to make any changes in our neighborhood?



Yes, there is one particular change that I really wish for, and that is there should be another open space which is far away from our neighborhood so that elder ladies could still keep on their leisure activity of dancing with loud music in the evening. Therefore, young people like me would not feel bothered when we get home and want a good rest after a long day of work.


particular 形容词;特有的  特别的

EgHe visits that shoe store quite a few times each year as there is one particular type of brand that he can only find in that store. 


②keep on 短语;继续 持续

EgAlthough his company went bankrupt, he still keeps on donating to charities.


Why do some elder people go against new changes in their life?



Well, because most elder people are pretty conservative in their life, meaning any form of new changes would probably make them feel upset. For instance, when you take them to a newly-opened restaurant, they might feel uncomfortable, or when you ask them to try some new high-tech devices, you may get a refusal. 



conservative 形容词;保守的  传统的

Eg:  Someone who is conservative or has conservative ideas is unwilling to accept changes and new ideas.


high-tech: 形容词;高科技的

EgDespite his age, he really likes to use those high-tech devices a lot. 












题目:The maps show the Riverside Park in 2010 and the Riverside Park now.







The two maps show the main changes which have taken place in the Riverside Park from 2010 to the present day. During these eight years the park has experienced an improvement in facilities while the green areas are well maintained.


In 2010, the park contained a number of large mature trees in the southwest and three car parks outside the woods. Next to the car parks was a long walking track stretching from southwest to northeast within the park. A river was in the northern part, flowing from west to east. And in the east of the park there was a heritage railway which serves as a vital north-south transport artery.


At present, a cycle path has been built along the river edge, running through the majority of the park from west to east. In addition, a large scale of land in the middle of the park is applied to construct recreational facilities such as sports fields, swings, and a café bar. The station is located to the south of the recreation area, which is very convenient for the tourists. On the opposite of the recreation area, a hotel with the parking lot is newly built to provide a rest place for the tourists.      



facility: n.   设施

walking track: 步行道

serve as: adv. 充当

题目:Some people think that schools should stop teaching children by using books, because children find them boring and that children can learn from films, TV, video games and computers instead. To what extent do you agree or disagree?








Thanks to the development of modern technology, children nowadays are granted the access to the Internet and other multi-media at an early age. As the trend continues, some people suggest that schools should abandon the traditional textbooks and adopt movies or computer games as the main teaching material. Taking the current situation into consideration, I think the proposed way is too far from realistic.


It is true that TV and computer games provide a new way to learn, and the sound and images can make children focus more on the screen. Nevertheless, fascinating and attractive as they are, the new media can only be a kind of after-meal dessert compared with the main course pupils read and learn in school. Information from the internet and other hi-tech sources might be incorrect and could not match the pupils’ abilities perfectly, so they are more suitable as an extracurricular supplement. Still, it is the textbooks that play the significant role to educate and inspire the students.


Years of practice has proven that well-designed curricular materials have the power to be inviting as well as informative to children. One of the most distinctive features of textbooks is that they provide a systematic learning route with scientific teaching modules and scaffolding methods, which ensures the scope and sequence of certain subjects. Therefore, children can learn more efficiently and comprehensively using these traditional materials.


Besides, the concept of teaching through computer games and other media just started in recent years, so the theory is not fully developed and the results differ among a variety of experiments. Though it is good to embrace the new, we cannot afford to put the future of our next generation on the bet.


To sum up, the technology development indeed offers us a new field of teaching methods, but whether they are a good way to learn or merely a kind of entertainment in disguise still needs to be discussed. So currently it is advisable to choose reading books, the safer and more reasonable learning style as the mainstream in education.

fascinating: adj.   迷人的

extracurricular: adj.   课外的

scaffolding: n.   辅助提升/进步的方式
